INFORMATION ON LINUX

LINUX is a freely distributable operating system written and maintained by Linus Torvalds and other programmers worldwide. Many applications are developed as open source from people from all over the world. As a basis for applications Linux offers everything needed. Especially networking is well supported by Linux and moreover the necessary security on the internet is provided.
Detailed information on Linux are e.g. found at: www.linux.org

We want to give a brief overview of applications available for a professional architectural workstation:
